He’d say good night to his parents, […] More

  • Threat of Hope: A Ghost Story by Alex Boast

    Chapter 1: Initium

    My name is Wesley and somewhere close by my dog is barking in an otherwise silent night. Each of my fifteen years I’ve been told I’m different: by my dad, and his dad, when they were around of course. It’s only now, as the autumn rolls in, and I change the way the seasons do […] More

  • Casualty Vampires

    What strange times to be alive, Allison thought ruefully as she watched the golden disk of the sun slide ever further down the line of the horizon from the top of the old Ferris wheel.

    There is only darkness. Nothing penetrates my eyes, no variations in light, shade or shadow. I can feel my eyes dart and move frantically back and forth, panic fills my mind.

  • This Tiny Breath: A Ghost Story

    “Can you hear that?” I ask her, rolling over in bed. “Hear what?” she replies, eyes sleepy, beautiful. “Oh…why do you breathe like that?” “Breathe like what?” she asks, sitting up. “Tiny breaths, like you’re sipping on the air.” We had just moved into our new place when I first heard it, and I was […] More

  • The Uncanny Narrative of the Madman John Doe

    I am Madness. There, it is done. It is said. You have come to me often asking who I am and now you know. Such a statement might seem overly bold, an exaggeration at best, if not an outright lie. Yet I swear to you it is the truth, pure and undiluted. Such sweeping proclamations […] More

    The Writer Of Death

    The bright yellow cab came to a screeching halt, splashing droplets of water across the sidewalk. I could hear the rumbling of the exhaust as I gave the taxi man his money. He huffed quietly under his breath as he counted the crumpled up bank notes. The cab felt so warm and welcoming inside unlike […] More

    The Black Rock Chapel Horror

    Inside the hallway to the sanctuary, the clutter of overturned mahogany and discarded crucifix trinkets littered the long crimson-hued carpet that lined the main hall.
